You might want to mention the compression ratio (or describe the piston top if unsure),
and what carburetor size/type you're planning to use. A 10TT9/concentric or monoblock will all have different settings.
Have you measured the piston to bore clearance at all? Is this a fresh bore or an old bore rehoned?
more info would be helpful...
Cheers
